, two of the three organizations testifying today did not exist. and the third, the f.b.i., was a very different organization than it is today. focused on domestic crime as it had been for quite a while. obviously in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks on america of 9/11, 2001, congress and the executive branch created the department of homeland security and then pursuant to the 9/11 commission recommendation created the national counterterrorism center. the f.b.i. essentially recreated itself into a first rate domestic counterterrorism intelligence agency. in addition to carrying out all its other responsibilities. in his absence we should thank director mueller for what i think is an extraordinary job he's done in overseeing this historic transformation and to thank the two of you, secretary napolitano, and director olsen, for what you have done together these changes represent the most significant reforms of america's national security organizations since the 1940's, at the beginning of the cold war. it's not coincidental since after 9/11 we understood we were facing a very diffe

. there is an ongoing investigation. the fbi is investigating, and that investigation will follow the facts wherever they lead. gerri: ambassador, what's that response tell you? >> well, i think they were in denial in the first place. the notion they turned up with rocket propelled grenades and mortars in a spontaneous demonstration, september 11th of all dates, and seemed to have targeted and killed the american ambassador, so responsible for the liberation of libya, i think is -- was very clearly deliberate, and whether they were angry about the video. i think probably not so much there because most people there are pro-american, but elsewhere, yes, they are angry about the video, but focusing on the video is bad in a number of respects. there's no way you can shut down outrageous speech in the country of the united states, it's going to happen, but if the responsibility of responsible officials in egypt and other countries throughout the world to take actions to protect embassies and they are the ones who are responsible, and the extremists sure -- stirring up the crowds are responsible. talking
income tax fund things like national defense, homeland security, the fbi, the judicial system, national parks, welfare programs. they're not paying in any anything into those services that we traditionally think the government is providing aside from retirement programs like social security and medicare. they have no skin in the game when it comes to increasing spending on programs. they have no reason to push back when people here in washington want to expand those programs. what is happening is, spending is growing. the government is growing and dependency on government is growing as a result. this has two major problems. one the government's finances. we can't afford to keep spending like this. more importantly, it is bad for people, bad for individuals. it erodes human dignity. we should not want people dependent on government. we want them independent. we want them to lead meingful, purposeful lives and big government prevents that in many way. >> from a numbers standpoint if you have 47% of the population that isn't paying federal income tax, if you make an appeal to them we need

they are trying to do is hide behind the fact of an fbi investigation that's pending in libya. which i find ridiculous. the idea that the administration has returned to terrorism as a criminal law matter rather than as a continuing war is extraordinarily disturbing. >> i am even surprised at the discussion. why in the world did anyone need a warning? i've traveled to some of the dangerous places around the country. i haven't been to libya, but i would suspect that place would look pretty dangerous to me. they have a grand new government, lots of factions, you have people fighting each other, fighting the old administration. why would you even need a warning that we really have to have lots of security for our people? >> we were obviously caught by surprise both in libya and in egypt. different situations but caught by surprise in both cases which means only one of two things. either there's a massive intelligence failure not to see this coming, or the administration believes that things were so benign, that the environment was so calm they didn't have to worry about it. wrong in both cases.

on the information that we have had available. there is an ongoing investigation. the fbi is investigating and that investigation will follow the facts wherever they lead. bill: kt mcfarland, fox news national security analyst, stephen hayes, weekly writer for "the weekly standard", fox news contributor. >> good morning bill, we talked about this on monday. kt is there a crack in the story we're seeing? >> yeah, sure is. why are they doing it? i think they're haunted by the image of jimmy carter losing the presidential election in 1980 because of hostages in the middle east. the situation is very similar today. the economy is lousy. high oil prices. crisis in the middle east. so they do not want to be compared to that. i also think that they're sticking to kind of cockamamie story that it was spontaneous because of a dumb movie because it absolves them of responsibility. >> how so? >> i think there will be more incidents going forward. can you imagine where we would be instead of assassinating those four diplomats turns out there was a al qaeda hostage taking event where four american dipl
or premeditated attack. there is an ongoing investigation and the fbi is investigating and that will follow the facts where ever they lead. >> as of monday they were not on the ground because the conditions were too tense. i think it is fair to point out i am a genuous. i didn't have any problem that governor mitt romney said we should not be apologizing for a video after they attack the embassy. you know that president obama lost five points and gall up and the daily tracking poll before the 47 percent came out as well as rassmussen has it back to a one point since the twen embassies got hit. >> the president had a post convention bounce and it went up in flames. >> and the oh, my gosh. are you going out to get another green tree for me. it was good celery, thanks. coming up on "fox and friends". remember when the dnc honored thet haves by showing russian war ships. see anything about the airplanes that is not so american. favorite tv shows asked to promote obama care and guess who is paying for it. stewart varney is here to explain that. ♪ hey now. ♪ get your game on. ♪ hey now.
